All rooms facing the ocean. The fall is a great time to visit as there are few people and lots of views - clean beaches, warm ocean waters.
I especially liked the view from the room, on both the ocean side and the marsh side. I also liked the fact that the beach to the left, facing the ocean, of the hotel, was not developed. Because of the large "window doors," the view of the ocean from the room was fantastic.
My wife, our adult son and I stayed there for three days. The suite was arranged so that most "paths" were single file. If we were all walking around the apartment, we had to stop to let each other pass.
The view from the top floor was great
The water smelled like eggs. Hotel needs updates. New sheets and towels need bought. Restaurant was very pricey and smelt like fried food. Drinks were expensive. We were there for a wedding and the stuff would not put us all together. There were gnats in the rooms. The blinds bare falling down.
location friendliness of staff
bed mattress old one toilet didn't always flush one TV didn't work peeling in ceiling of bathroom above tub elavator broke down one morning room was not ready on arrival as promised
The view, the sound, the smell...........LOVE the ocean!!!!
Hot elevator was almost unbearable, but the doors opening to the ocean view was fantastic.
the location was great
the cost for a room is way to high. for 200.00 a night you would excepted a must better room
I walked in to the counter after hours of traveling from NY it was before noon and I was able to check into my room right away! Very friendly front desk personnel! Loved the spectacular views! Looking forward to another visit real soon!
STAFF WAS SUPERB. ANDREW WAS #1. BEACH AREA CLEAN AND SAFE. INSIDE POOL VERY CLEAN. GREETED WITH A SMILES AND FRIENDLY FACES
KITCHEN AREA..STOVE DIDN'T WORK PROPERLY ONE OF THE ISLES DIDNT WORK. REFRIG NOT COLD ENOUGH.
Balcony Steps from the beach Amazing view from the room
Very old furniture Old, cheap and rusty bathroom fixtures We stayed there for three days and the room wasn't cleaned once. Cleaning staff did come and asked whether we needed anything but never cleaned the room. Patchy wi-fi
The view and the food over all this is a awesome place to stay. The staff was excellent. I will be back
The lady in the room over mine would smoke on her balcony. They should have a designated smoking area for smokers. Also they need more shaded areas to sit
Shell Island Resort is fast becoming our favorite place to stay in Wrightsville! My husband and I really enjoy the ocean front suites and the excellent location. We enjoy our beach walks past the hotel and beyond the point - it's just an excellent property for couples who enjoy the amenities of a hotel but the privacy of a condo.
The only thing that could have been improved was that housekeeping didn't come till late in the afternoon, as we were coming in from the beach to take showers. As a result of coming late and being in a rush, they did not clean our rooms thoroughly.
Hotel accomodations-comfortable, well appointed, beautiful view, quiet. Beach wide, not crowded, facility staff helpful and friendly. Will return
The location with an oceanfront view. A place of restitution.
Having to leave so soon!
the view was wonderful on both sides of the hotel. the oceanfront view with tinted windows provided an awesome view
the food in the restaurant was not good the non-alcoholic drinks had a funny taste to them there were water bugs all over the patio area in the evening
View beach comfortable bed
no hair dryer no pots or pans for kitchenette not honoring do not disturb sign-house keeping walked in while I was on the toilet!
Room view was nice, the beach is excellent.
Outdated mattress and comforter. A little to pricey considering the age of the place. WiFi didn't really work was extremely slow (we weren't the only ones to notice).
Location and convenience.
Cleanliness of room.
The location - right on the beach. I thought the staff were very friendly and accommodating. There's a tiki bar right on the beach, and we had dinner at the restaurant, and the food was very good. There's a nice, big covered parking structure, too.
Two elevators - very slow. The place in general just needs some love. It needs to be painted, and door handles switched out...it's just looking its age. At $300+ per night, I expect the aesthetics, too.
The location is they only thing going for this hotel. Beautiful beaches.
The sheets were extremely stiff and paper feeling. Most uncomfortable bed I have ever been in. The towels were of really cheap quality and left little white lint pieces all over your body. My husband's beard was full of while lint we had to get out. The pool outside is very small for the hotel size and was not very clean. There was scum all around the edge of the pool and on the tiles.
Loved the room, 2 bathrooms came in handy. There was a functional kitchen and 2 TVs, close walk to the beach, beautiful views, GREAT Blue Crab Dip. Will go back as soon as possible!
I used Booking.com to reserve my room, upon arrival, Shell Island Resort did not have my reservation. After much confusion for them, they realized that Booking.com never placed my room on their list. However, I was lucky that they were able to get me a room. Doubt I will use Booking.com again, next time I may not be so lucky!
joanna at the front desk was great. maintenance man (ponytail) was great. staff overall was fantastic. the people were the only redeeming feature.
room was gross. sheets had dirt, mascara and blood stains. foul! room flooded and had mold. no one ever showed up to clean the room our entire stay. this was the worst overall experience we had ever had. unbelievable and unprecedented.
The resort is on the ocean and there isn't anything next to it on the left and the beach is very wide.
We stayed at an individually owned condo (most of them are) and whenever we wanted anything fixed the hotel told us it was up to the owner to fix it and he was out of town and couldn't be reached. The water tastes terrible and you need to bring your own because I tried to buy bottled water and most of the time they didn't have any. If you go, check out the room before you sign anything because if anything is broken, it won't be fixed.
Having only a buffet breakfast option
the location, the facilities. The rooms were a little small but absolutely lovely
the elevator was slow and not airconditioned. The restaurant needs to expand its menu
